    Right click on the image and click “view image in other tab” or whatever your OS option is to see it enlarged. The larger you can see it the more incredible the detail and light is! If you were on one of its moons in the right place, you’d be looking at this every day.

    By the way, the white cricle at the edge of the planet at the bottom left quarter.. is a storm. It is about the size of our moon. A windy storm the size of our moon! Earth is tiny tiny tiny compared with Jupiter

    This image was taken by the Juno mission which still has a couple months to go of observation. It will eventually fall into the Jupiter atmosphere. Because it is a mind boggling enormous planet the atmosphere is heavy and the pressure grows exponentially as you head towards the planets core. Juno doesn’t have to go far before its utterly crushed. It won’t even remotely drop below a few cloud layers before the pressure is hundreds of times more than the bottom of the Atlantic ocean. If you somehow made it to the core of the planet, you’d become a pancake at the width of a piece of paper. Just saying if you ever want to be a pancake…Jupiter is where you should go!!!
